"For those who know the story of the Bridge Wars, there's some irony found in the fact that Scott La Rock, representing the South Bronx, was born in Queens; though he did relocate to the South Bronx at a very young age. After graduating high school La Rock spent four years in Vermont at Castleton College where he earned varsity letters in basketball, but more importantly for the world of hip hop he became more and more enamored with music. On graduation he returned to New York and began working as a DJ and as a social worker at the Franklin Armory Men's Shelter in the Bronx. It was at the shelter that Scott met Kris Parker and the duo formed Boogie Down Productions. The rest, as they say, is history. Roughly a year after the tragic shooting death of Boogie Down Productions founder, DJ and producer Scott La Rock, B Boy Records, and KRS-One issued this special remix album, Man & His Music (Remixes From Around The World). Billed as a 'Limited Edition Collector's Classic' the project was released in a limited run -- briefly available in the '90s -- and now after years of being unavailable reappears as a tribute to one of the genre's early pioneers."
